After reading the specifics of the Obama-Boehner budget deal, FreedomWorks Senior Economic Contributor Stephen Moore commented:
“This budget deal is a betrayal of all the fiscally conservative promises Republicans made in the last election. It is emblematic of why working-class Americans are angry with congressional Republicans. This sacrifices the one budget victory Republicans have won in the last five years – budget caps and sequester. It is a total victory for Pelosi, Obama and the lobbyists in Washington, and taxpayers are once again the victims. To raise the debt ceiling with no fiscal reforms in the budget process to stop the debt explosion guarantees near trillion dollar deficits for as far as the eye can see."
“Every presidential candidate should be asked where they stand on this calamity and anyone who supports it is no friend of taxpayers."
